    • Synopsis
    • On his birthday, Schneider, a contract killer disguised as a handyman reluctantly takes on the easy task of killing Bax, a novelist who has a substance-abuse problem that could do him in before his rival contract arrives. Mertens, Schneider's boss, orders him to grab his rifle and get to work. He insists the job to be done today, adding, “Ramon Bax is a child killer”. Bax who is a total mess is also a pro-hitman under Mertens and forgets he was supposed to kill Schneider that day because, according to Mertens, “Schneider is a child killer”. Both Schneider and Bax know they are being played, but since it is a contract they have a certain obligation.
